The film's highlights are the figure skating scenes, which are well choreographed and shot. But unfortunately, the film has to have a typical Hollywood story that is about as generic as Crispy Rice.

Audience Reviews for Ice Castles

Another teen movie which was a pre-cursor to the 80s teen craze, this one is a drama, and an overly dramatic one at that. First of all, I don't care much for sports related movies anyway, but this combines a sports movie and a melodrama. It could have been a great movie if it had toned down the melodrama a bit, and added a bit of comedy. The romance is good, though.

When I was 10 or 11 years old, I was obsessed with this movie. So much so that I had to have an ice skating birthday party. Which was when I found out I *don't* have a natural talent for ice skating.
